"can we get d?" and you go, "no, we called d, but we can get r." and you go, but they are actually names of people. and it really -- and then you're going through the monologue and setting up. i'm like, it's the same stuff we go through on our show as well. a lot of -- we looked for the unexpected moments and the show -- on a talk show, most interesting parts of a talk show. after, you know, you have a run like, you know, conan or leno, not this time around, but before. they -- [ light laughter ] -- you do get a bunch of clips of unexpected moments. you have one of the most bizarre unexpected moments of all time, i think. >> are you going to show something?

[ audience oohs ] can you see me crossing my aorta here -- >> jimmy: yeah. >> yeah, a j.i. rodale. a nice man, very funny -- for 30 minutes he was hilarious. the next guest came out and was where you are and rodale had moved down there and the guest suddenly looked to his right and then the camera cut. we saw him -- [ snoring ] -- and to my eternal horror, two
1:04 am
things in my mind at once. i knew he was dead. and i said, "are we boring you, mr. rodeo?" [ audience oohs ] [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: "are we boring you?" >> and i will bet you that even as people here think this is made up, that audience for minutes as the death progressed on camera thought it was part of the show. 'cause you don't die with lights, camera, makeup and dancing -- dancing girls and so on. in this case, an exception was made this time. and mr. marshall brickman and i dug out that show recently, it never aired, watched it and neither of us remembered that in the previous 30 minutes he said, "i plan to live to be 100." >> jimmy: did he say that? >> absolutely. would i lie on your show? >> jimmy: never -- no, not ever but -- >> by the way, you have a hell of a good show. and if i were you -- they usually hit the "applause" sign on those. don't they?

[ laughter ] and she was so amazing. it's true, she was so amazing and it was really great and the performance was amazing but she was very new and wasn't this crazy moment she's having now. and we kind of kept in touch and it was kind of just a really random thing and i remember she called me and was like, "i need this look for the today show. i'm going on the today show for the first time tomorrow." so, we made an outfit the night before. i met her, personally, at like 6:00 in the morning. we did a little quick fitting. we didn't even have a fitting and that was it. and it was really fun. it's in the book. >> jimmy: i was going to say, there it is. you and gaga. absolutely, and what do you think of her now? i mean, she's kind of -- >> i mean, it's so amazing. >> jimmy: upped the ante, right? >> yeah, i mean, obviously now, she's in armani prive, so -- which is amazing but it's nice for me because it was a great moment for me now. because it was special and i was able to put it in the book and, you know, i'm moving on.
